    1 out of 5 ain't bad (According to Trey's five cocktail essentials) I am going to start to play up Northern MN's pure ice. Some of the oak for bourbon comes from MN too! It is kind of funny though. Comparing my cocktail knowledge to the coasts and Chicago, I am some kind of backwoods sasquatch. In my area I am some kind of cocktail snob if I pour a mid-shelf bourbon with some decent M & R vermouth or Noilly Pratt and have a few types of bitters on hand! The nice thing is my palate really resides in the mid to low shelf. Hell, I even enjoyed an Old Crow Reserve Manhattan the other night and an Old Fashioned last eve.

    There are many good vermouths and sometimes discretion is the better part of vermouth! Ones like Carpano, Cocchi di Torino or another favorite like Punt e Mes bring their own agenda to a drink. Sometimes that is good. Occasionally it is not.

    I would rate Noilly Prat as a pretty decent option, especially with the new deja vu all over again reformulation. For cocktails go with what is now called Original Dry and leave the "Extra Dry" for the old school American martini crowd.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    LMFAO!

    Yeah, we're kinda spoiled in the Bay Area with all the uppity bars, slick cocktailians, and their esoteric recipes for infused herbal essences...

    Had a killer Manhattan the other night with OGD 114, Cocchi di Torino, and Stirrings Blood Orange bitters that was quite spicy warming and tasty.

    Bay Area native here

    My winter cocktails are probably more summer appropriate; I spent December in SE Asia where tasting Singapore Slings became my microhobby. I also invented (?) a cocktail with mangosteen juice, gin, and bitter lemon flavored soda water.

    'Nuther Old Crotchety Fashioned. Combo of the last pours from an OGD 114, WTRB, and 4R1. Appropriately stirred. I'm shakin' the shite out of the Angostura again, though. If I keep this up, I'm gonna need another bottle of it pretty soon. Does it come in a Family Size?

    I have a 10oz (300ml) bottle of Angostura that's lasted me for a couple of years. What size is yours?
